TNA Impact Wrestling sees Decay’s Rosemary take on a departing Jade for the TNA Knockouts Championship tonight. Major talent departing TNA.

TNA Impact Wrestling is going through massive changes. First of all, one of the biggest storylines in TNA and wrestling period ‘The Broken Hardys’ are gone. Feeling disrespected by the company they kept afloat and alive in the mainstream for all of 2016.

Last week’s Impact Wrestling featured an Attitude era-like classic in Laurel Van Ness-Braxton Sutter’s Wedding… Now the primary antagonists in the Allie saga, Maria Kanellis Bennett and ‘The Miracle’ Mike Bennett have left the building. Drew Galloway who faces Moose tonight for the Impact Grand Wrestling Championship is leaving. Former Knockouts Champion Jade, who’s currently feuding with Decay’s Rosemary also on her way out.

Jeff Jarrett and Dutch Mantel are back to running the show like the old days of NWA TNA. Whether things would have been different talent-wise and creatively with the Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan at the throne is a good what-if. As music licensing is concerned (Decay is a great example) definitley, and he liked what ‘the Broken Hardys’ were doing and where they taking wrestling.

Now we’re at a crossroads. The defacto new main attraction of TNA is Rosemary/Decay and while she can more than handle the responsibility, wrestling is always better with great antagonists to play off of. The Broken Hardys/Decay feud pushed the Decay faction into the limelight and greatly evolved Rosemary’s character inside and outside of the ring. She evolved with the storyline as did Abyss and Crazy Steve.

Eli Drake, already on the brink of main eventing will now be one of TNA Impact’s main draws. Before you could have built Eli Drake with established names in Wrestling in the Hardys to make WWE fans become acquainted with Drake like Decay has. Now that option is gone. James Storm and EC3 will be one of the few TNA built stars that remain as established names at the company.

You could say based on Jade leaving in real life this match will likely go to Rosemary retaining the Knockouts title. Which she should either way as she’s Impact Wrestling’s biggest name right now as it pertains expanding the fan base. Rosemary’s character is fresh and her wide appeal to an untapped fanbase is something to watch. Just like Raven’s grungy character and flock brought new pairs of eyes on WCW, Rosemary can do the same for TNA Impact Wrestling. This should be a great final match between Rosemary and Jade to finish the feud. Great chemistry in the ring between the two.

The Cody/Moose feud is on to an excellent start. You couldn’t help but cheer for Cody, a man who’s been away over at NJPW while another wrestler attempts to step in on his wife. This is a long term storyline and judging by Brandi Rhodes looking back after Cody hit the Crossroads, the tension will only be growing. A heel turn by Brandi on Moose would be the best twist to push a refreshing narrative with an eventually Bullet Club invasion led by Cody. Imagine Kenny Omega making an appearance in Impact Wrestling.

On one side Drew Galloway is leaving Impact Wrestling, so he seems likely to drop the belt to Moose. Then Cody interfering and costing Moose the chance at becoming a 2-time Grand Champion would be the most obvious match ending. Difficult to say if Galloway drops the belt tonight or hands it back behind closed doors and leaves the company like the Broken Hardys.

MMA is alive and well in TNA Impact Wrestling with former UFC Heavyweight Champ Josh Barnett facing Bobby Lashley for the TNA World Championship. Lashley will likely retain but this should be an on-going feud for a while and the match probably finished with Lashley winning in underhanded fashion. Maybe an interference, it’s too early for a clean pin at this stage of the game.

One of Impact Wrestling’s most underrated stars Trevor Lee will face his former tag-team partner Andrew Everett for the X Division title. Sure to be an excellent wrestling match between the two X Division talents. Trevor Lee probably takes home the gold… Though it wouldn’t surprise to see Everett take the belt and make Trevor Lee chase the title for a while.

TNA Impact Wrestling Preview for 2/16/17 – Broken Hardys in Mexico

Tonight’s TNA Impact Wrestling has the Broken Hardys in Mexico, Rosemary/Crazy Steve Vs Brandi Rhodes/Moose and a new Fact of Life with Eli Drake!

The Expedition of Gold goes South of the border on tonight’s Impact Wrestling! The Hardys will embark on a trip to Tijauna in an attempt to capture more championship gold. Will Vanguard 1 play a part in helping the Hardys add one more notch to their global legacy?

Rosemary has been on an absolute tear since winning the Monster’s Ball match against Jade. She is making a case for the Top 5 in women’s wrestling every time she steps into the ring or unleashes a promo.

Rosemary’s latest infatuation, Brandi Rhodes, has refused to join Decay despite a generous offer. Now she faces Decay as Crazy Steve and Rosemary will face former Mike Bennet protege Moose and Brandi Rhodes in a tag-team match. Remember Abyss might be lurking around the ring at any time, anywhere, ready to appear Luke Harper style.

An all new Fact of Life is ready to be dished out by late night host-in training Eli Drake on tonight’s Impact Wrestling. Eli Drake has constantly stolen the show through these Fact of Life segments and is one of TNA’s breakout stars. A natural on the mic, late 2016 established Drake has a big time player, a main eventer in TNA. A draw, potentially an immense draw if Impact Wrestling keeps booking Drake the way he should be. They’ll have to keep Drake happy if they intend to make sure he doesn’t leave for greener pastures.

It was inevitable that The Wolves would break up, you can’t have a full time World Champion and part time tag team partner. Davey Richards loathing of Eddie Edwards success has been brewing since he returned from injury and now at its boiling point.

Richards cost Edwards his Impact Wrestling World Championship in a match against Bobby Lashley by pulling the ref out of the ring in an opportune time. Then Richard’s wife Angelina Love proceeded to take out Edwards’ wife Alexxis Nevaeh in the stands. Best of friends make bitterest of enemies as the fallout continues on tonight’s edition of Impact Wrestling.

The Laurel Van Ness, Allie, Braxton love triangle continues as Braxton is now set to marry Laurel Van Ness in 8 days. Will Braxton give into pressure from the first lady of wrestling Maria Kanellis-Bennett? Can Allie just stand by while the potential love of her life slips away?

TNA Impact Wrestling Preview for 1/12/17

Broken Matt Hardy released Brother Nero from deletion on last week’s Impact Wrestling! What lies ahead for the tag team champions of space and time?

A matchup with The Wolves Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards is first on the list. The Wolves have been facing inner turmoil with a returning Davey Richards feeling envy towards his now TNA World Heavyweight Champion partner. Will they be able to work together in a showdown with the premiere tag team of TNA or will their friendship crumble in a losing effort?

Now that Brother Nero has been released from deletion we can expect the patented high spots to return to Impact Wrestling. Jeff’s never been one to hesitate to go the extra mile to put a match over.

Decay’s Rosemary has an invitation open for Jade tonight. Jade was last seen in a cage match that tore the house down and saw Rosemary become TNA Knockouts Champion. Will Gail Kim interfere in the likely ensuing mayhem? Gail announced last Impact she was not retiring and rather taking a leave of absence to heal from injury.

Impact Wrestling is promising the return of an infamous TNA Knockout tonight. Mickie James recently signed a contract back with the WWE so we know it’s not her. Without reading spoilers (which you’ll never see on this site) it’s hard to say for sure who it will be. Although ODB had a match on The Final Deletion episode and received a warm response from the crowd. Perhaps she’s returning full time.

Tonight on Impact Wrestling both contenders for the TNA Heavyweight Championship EC3 and Bobby Lashley will face off in a Last Man Standing match. This rivilary is less personal and more business. Each wants the same thing, a chance to oust Eddie Edwards off his throne and rule as King with the belt laying on top their shoulder.

Finally, the long-term feud between Maria Kanellis Bennett and her assistant Allie starts effecting their other halves. The Miracle Mike Bennet will do battle with Braxton Sutter on behalf of the ladies. Who will get the last laugh, will Laurel Van Ness make an appearance? Ness has been trying to get under Allie’s skin by flirting with Sutter.
